Without actually leaving our campus sites at Corsham and Farnborough, the Ark Team will be pedalling together, through the night, to make the 847 mile distance in 24 hours. This virtual journey will see us working in relay on two static bikes at each campus needing to average, collectively, over 35 miles an hour.
This could not have been planned without the fantastic support of Hire Fitness, who have donated the static bikes for the attempt.
Please support us in this immense effort involving virtually the whole team – from juniors to geriatrics! You can do this by clicking here
The Lycra has been retrieved from the back of the cupboard, the rigorous training programme has been widely ignored, and the sports diet has been loosely adopted. Now it’s up to us and you to see our efforts contribute to a tremendous cause.’
